This lovely frost-hardy plant from the Andes

 Family: Bromeliaceae
Plant Classification: Hardy perennial

This lovely frost-hardy plant from the Andes produces a clump of gray-green, spike-edged leaves and finally shoots up a tall inflorescence containing numerous flowers which are an stunning metallic blue-green colour.
Sowing advice: Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
